Teknomek’s latest seating bench steps up, and over


Teknomek’s long-serving free-standing stainless steel seating bench has been updated with a raft of design tweaks to make it even more hygienic, easy clean and ergonomic.

Sue Springett, commercial manager at Teknomek, says: “A seating bench is one of those products where you might imagine there’s limited room for improvement. It’s only by listening closely to end users that you can really appreciate the small changes that could make a real difference to the life time cost of cleaning.

“We took feedback from everyone from hygiene managers to occupational health experts to come up with the revised version. It may be ‘just’ a seating bench, but we’re confident it’s the easiest to clean step over bench on the market.”

Hygiene is, as ever, the primary consideration in designs for the pharma sector. The bench is made of easy-to-clean 304-grade stainless steel with all ‘dirt traps’ – ledges or crevices where dirt and dust can collect – removed to reduce risk from microbial contaminants. This attention to detail even extends to removing the chamfered edge from its predecessor and minimising raised welds while keeping the underneath fully sealed. These revisions allow for quicker and more effective clean down.

The design is also informed by a requirement to make the product as safe and ergonomic as possible. 450mm was deemed to be the optimum height for sitting, the depth has been reduced to 350mm to decrease pressure on the user’s back, and also makes it easier to step over.

The new bench has been robustly designed to ensure longevity of service: it employs a 30mm box section frame and 40mm wide legs to make it strong enough to support weights of up to 250kg. It is also available in a 316-grade stainless steel version for applications requiring extra corrosion resistance.

Microalgae Culture Using the DASGIP® PBR4 Module for Illumination with a New Brunswick™ CelliGen® 310 Stirred-tank Bioreactor

Eppendorf

The number of bioprocess applications for microalgae has increased in recent years, particularly in the fi eld of biofuel production. The combination of the New Brunswick CelliGen 310 stirred-tank bioreactor and the DASGIP LED Illumination System creates a bioreactor setup which is capable of supporting high density microalgal growth. Using the stand-alone Eppendorf DASGIP PBR4 Module, LED illumination spectra and intensities can be controlled for optimal support of all types of chlorophylls and carotenoids. For this study in which high density culture of up to 1.5 x 107 cells/mL was achieved, the unicellular freshwater alga, Dunaliella tertiolecta, was used.
